A-Level Art and Photography students from Abbey College Manchester took an inspirational trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield. Students went to sketch and photograph the works of art on display, a massive selection of contemporary modern art set amongst the grounds of Bretton Hall. Students went off to find subjects to photograph or draw to generate work on their return to the college. All students enjoyed the open air experience and wondering around these amazing works of art, and the glorious weather really helped as well!
After Bretton Hall, next stop was the Hepworth Gallery. Again, students went off to sketch and photograph the sculptures and artworks. The day was a huge success. For many of our students it was their first experience of seeing artworks of this kind, and it provided endless inspiration to all the students when they got back to class.
